American Farm Bureau Federation President, Bob Stallman, welcomed everyone to the 94th Annual Meeting. I will update this post soon after the opening session for you to listen to if you missed it or need it for a broadcast or report.
Stallman reviewed accomplishments made by AFBF during the last year. He urged members to be in contact with their elected leaders and told them that no matter what they’ve read, they are relevant. In talking about the newly elected leaders he said, “We must let them know that our nation can no longer afford political drama, manufactured crises and self-serving jackass stubbornness.” That drew applause.
I have a photo album started and will be adding to it periodically throughout the meeting: 2013 American Farm Bureau Convention Photo Album
